Iceland – The Land of Fire and Ice – is a landscape photographer’s paradise. From mighty cascading waterfalls and spouting geysers to colossal glaciers, magnificent coastlines, majestic mountains and hot volcanoes.
On this North Iceland Photography Landscape Masterclass we will take you to the very best photography locations North Iceland has to offer, hand-picked by our professional photographic guides we will visit the rugged coastline of the North Island with the iconic waterfalls of Godafoss & Dettifoss, Kirkjufell mountain at the Snaefellsnes peninsula and the rock stacks at Hvitserkur.
As well as having extended and flexible time in the field, where we will work one-on-one with each guest to hone your landscape photography skills, we will also provide demonstrations of advanced landscape photography techniques, such as High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) and night photography. We also encourage participants to bring a selection of their work for a review and critique, where our professional tutor will discuss the art of landscape photography composition, how to use the camera to create wow-factor images and how to approach landscape photography with the eye of a pro.
Your tutor for this workshop is Lee Pengelly. Lee is a professional photographer specialising in landscape & nature photography. Lee started taking pictures in 1996, after a college course and Bureau of Freelance Photographers study course. Between 1996 and 2000 he honed his skills and built up a range of clients for his work. By late 2000 he had given up the day job and turned pro.
His clients include the Landmark Trust, B&Q, Ordnance Survey, Daily Mail, Kodak, National Trust, Outdoor Photography, Practical Photography, The National Grid and the Britannia Group.
Lee’s work is also represented by Corbis, Alamy, Britain On View,(Photolibrary), Loop Images and Imageclick picture agencies and sold worldwide in books, newspapers, magazines, calendars, cards and travel guides.
In 2007 Lee began running photography lectures for clubs and societies, focusing on photographic technique and his style of photography. He is an experienced course leader, running UK and overseas workshops.
“I have a passion for the landscape and it’s the subject that got me to pick up the camera, I will always love it and always return to it. I love to be out in the great outdoors in all weathers capturing the changing light.
